We perform a time-dependent amplitude analysis of $B^0 \to K^0_S\pi^+\pi^-$ decays to extract the CP violation parameters of $f_0(980) K^0_S$ and $\rho^0(770) K^0_S$ and the direct CP asymmetry of $K^{*+}(892) \pi^-$. The results are obtained from a data sample of $(383 \pm 3) \times 10^6$ $B\bar{B}$ decays, collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy $B$ factory at SLAC. We find two solutions, with an equivalent goodness-of-fit. Including systematic and Dalitz plot model uncertainties, the combined confidence interval for values of the CP parameter $\beta_{eff}$ in $B^0$ decays to $f_0(980) K^0_S$ is $18^o
